My goal for this film is to create a 3-4 minute animation based on the short story On the Other Side of the Fence  by author . The story is found in his book: Misadventures in a Thumbnail Universe.

The story is about Deborah, a young girl who lives a carefree life on a small plot of land. Her life takes a turn as dead chickens continuously appear in her yard. She attempts to hide the chickens and is embarrassed, so she begins to shove the chickens into balloons. Soon her yard is filled with balloons. As she grows in to adulthood, she constantly tries to hide the chickens that appear. In the end, she realizes that she cannot do it alone.

The process of creating has begun and this is where I need help!

I will be designing and fabricating the puppets. These materials are expensive and it would be amazing if I could get help with funding! I am super excited to get started on the project!

If you're interested in learning more about the project or would like to get updates you can check us out at our twitter or take a look at our blog.

THE TEAM:

Ruth Wels

This is my senior project and I will be working with my team members to create something super cool! I will be designing and fabricating the puppets along with creating the set and working alongside the animator.

Mike Grunke

Mike will be assisting me with set construction and he has an amazing instinct for animation so it will be great to have him to help me through the process of animating.

Ben Schultz

Ben will be assisting with composing an original soundtrack and also with sound design. He is an amazing composer and I've really enjoyed working with him on other projects. Check out his website here.
